“Wonderful place for lunch”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

We had a very nice lunch here last Sunday. The gespacho and lobster salad were well prepared and tasty. A salmon salad was OK, but the salmon was overcooked. The service was prompt and friendly. Dining on the outdoor patio was delightful. All in all, a nice experience for lunch.

“Disappointing”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

I was expecting more from this restaurant. My salad was overdressed, the soup just okay, and the salmon cake inedible. I left unsatisfied and irritated that we had paid so much for so little. The atmosphere was quaint, especially on the patio (if you can ward off the mosquitos) but I need more than atmosphere.

“Better in previous years”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

We have always liked this restaurant but thought the food was better in previous years, unfortunately. It's still a lovely spot and one of the few choices in town.

“Excellent food and ambiance (mostly)”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

We had a great meal at this restaurant, even though my steak arrived cold. The server was appalled, returned it immediately, and a hot replacement was delivered quickly. That's how it should be. Everyone makes mistakes. They were sorry, and they fixed it. So I will go back again. Other than that small issue, the food was excellent, and we enjoyed it very much. Reservations are a MUST, especially when there are concerts at Tanglewood. We asked for an inside table on our reservation, which was good because it was quite chilly that night. They do have a large outdoor patio that would be great in good weather.
